LA VERNE (CBSLA) — Two people were hospitalized Saturday after a police pursuit ended in a violent crash in La Verne, authorities said.

The incident unfolded on Foothill Boulevard and Baseline Road just before 1 a.m. Saturday.

Police said the car was seen leaving the location of a suspected illegal casino. Officers attempted to pull the vehicle over for a code violation but the driver refused to stop.

That’s when authorities say Pomona police were in pursuit of a vehicle with two occupants inside.

The pursuit lasted a couple of miles and reached speeds of upwards of 100 mph. When the driver attempted to go on Baseline and make a right-hand turn, despite slowing speeds, they lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle eventually went airborne and flipped numerous times before landing.

As a result, the passenger in the vehicle was ejected from the car. Both the passenger and the driver were hospitalized.

No further details were immediately released.

    Note that the passenger was “ejected”, usually a sign that the person didn’t fasten his or her seat belt. Of course neither the driver nor the passenger showed signs of good sense.

    Ah yes the classic Prius getaway vehicle. Good choice.
    And in what world can a Prius go upwards of 100+ MPH?
